Snowflake Showcase – Snowflake card with galaxy style background

The Snowflake Showcase is simply stunning. This gorgeous set makes it easy to stretch my creativity and before I knew it, I was attempting my first ever galaxy-style blended background!

These backgrounds have been dry blended and I have also stayed with one colour family for each card so I’m not sure it qualifies officially as the galaxy technique (which I believe is usually watercoloured). But it is my unique take on that technique.

I had so much fun creating these backgrounds and they all came together relatively quickly too.

The snowflake is cut from the largest die in the Snowfall die set and it is absolutely beautiful. I cut each snowflake from the new white velvet sheets – oh my, how divine!!! This paper is pure luxury, and I love its texture and the way it pops so vividly against the blended background.

The colour combos I used were:

RED – poppy parade, lovely lipstick, real red, cherry cobbler, merry merlot

PINK – petal pink, flirty flamingo, melon mambo, berry burst

GREEN – lemon lime twist, mint macaron, old olive, tranquil tide

PURPLE – highland heather, gorgeous grape, Rich razzleberry, blackberry bliss

BLUE – coastal cabana, balmy blue, pacific point, night of navy

Don’t forget the snowflake showcase will only be available to purchase until the end of November so don’t miss out on this beautiful and timeless set!! To purchase any of the products, just click on the product picture below. Thanks for stopping by xx

Snow is Glistening Unicorn Card

The Snow is Glistening Stamp Set and coordinating Snowfall thinlits dies is a beautiful and exclusive new limited edition Set.

My idea for the unicorn card layout came from Pinterest, and as soon as I saw these intricate snowflake Dies, I thought they would make a cool and Christmassy alternative to the usual flowers you see on unicorn images.

I silver heat embossed the gorgeous tree image onto silver foil sheet and fussy cut the triangular shape out for the horn. I then sponged frost white shimmer paint onto the snowflakes to add to the wintery feel. I chose cool toned colours for this card and think the highland heather, rich razzleberry, balmy blue, coastal cabana and soft seafoam colours work so well together.

This bundle will be available for purchase ONLY UNTIL 30th November at my online store. Just click on any of the products in the list below to go straight to my shop.

Snowfall Takeout Treat Boxes – Sneak Peek

I had been wanting to use my takeout treats bundle forever and I’m so glad I finally got the excuse I needed by combining them with the brand new stunning and limited edition snowflake showcase!

Gray Granite has become a firm favourite for me so I decided to use this colour for my box base, with fresh fig, gorgeous grape and soft seafoam cardstock for my snowflakes and the panels behind them.

The snowflakes were cut using the brand new Snowfall Thinlits Dies, and I stayed with a tone on tone look for the snowflake decoration on the box. Once die cut, I sponged white frost shimmer paint onto the snowflakes. I’m so in love with the metallic/frosted look the cardstock takes on once the shimmer paint has been added – so beautiful and Christmassy!

Just love how these boxes turned out – so pretty and I think they would also work well at Christmas time for wedding favours or table decorations for Christmas Day.

The stunning snowflake showcase which consists of two beautiful stamp sets and the coordinating Snowfall dies will be available to purchase from my online store from tomorrow, 1st November for one month only! I will be bringing you more projects featuring this beautiful set in the coming weeks.
